21 AUGUST 2019 / The Summer Vibes Live On All Through September at the SNFCC!

Summer may be winding down, but that doesn’t mean the good summer vibes need to vanish. The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) is offering a rich program of events to help you ease back into post-summer life as smoothly as possible.

The Queen of Calypso, Calypso Rose, comes to Greece for the first time, bringing Afro-Caribbean sounds to the Great Lawn. Jan Van joins Pavlos Pavlidis onstage to perform Bad Poem, and May Roosevelt’s electronic soundscapes meet Mechanical’s beats. Trailblazing musical artist, vocalist, and composer Lena Platonos gives a concert that bridges past and present. The iconic band of the English-speaking Greek alt-rock scene, The Last Drive, rocks ‘n’ rolls at the Great Lawn, and the Athens State Orchestra returns to the Stavros Niarchos Park for the third time and takes us on a Journey to the New World.

Sutra, a critically acclaimed performance produced by Sadler’s Wells Theatre has captured the hearts and imaginations of more than 250,000 viewers worldwide—and now is your chance to see it too.

Park Your Cinema has its grand finale for this season, and the month concludes with two days of contemporary folk songs by 24 music ensembles from all over Greece, in a celebration of Domna Samiou’s legacy.

This September, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center enters its fourth year of operation.

Since August 2016, when it first opened its doors, the SNFCC has been embraced by the public, and visitor numbers have far exceeded expectations. The most optimistic projections predicted 700,000 visits a year. In 2017, the first full year of operation, the SNFCC welcomed more than 3 million visits, in 2018 it welcomed 5.3 million visits (a 76% increase), and in 2019, based on current data, the number of visits is expected to exceed 6 million.

The SNFCC is here for all of us, offering memorable experiences. Day and night, indoors and outdoors, alone or with company, during a good day or a bad one, on just a normal weekday or on a special occasion—you can always find the good side of life at the SNFCC.
